Green Light For Becoming Fools

We purchased airline tickets to Guatemala.

Two weeks from today we will board a plane to Guatemala and Becoming Fools will officially move from Pre-Production status to Production! I cannot even begin to explain the excitement that is building in our hearts!

If you have not already done so, please make your pledged donation directly through our website at

You might be asking why we are moving forward even though we didn’t hit our fundraising goal … or … why we didn’t just raise funds through our site to begin with?

We ran a Kickstarter campaign because thought it would allow us to reach a broader audience, outside of our sphere of influence. People from all over the world go to Kickstarter to fund creative projects. It is a great accountability system and caused us to work very hard hard.

We were inspired by the momentum gained in the last week and decided to prepare a contingency plan in case we didn’t reach our goal. So we spent the last three days of our Kickstarter campaign getting our web site set up to receive donations in case we didn’t reach the goal. In the end, we came REALLY close by raising over $105,000, but we didn’t reach our goal. Therefore no cards were charged and none of the pledges were collected.

But stop for a moment …


This is HUGE. I cannot state this enough. Seriously … WOW! And when you take into account that the entire Kickstarter web site was down during the last hour or so of our campaign … we probably would have raised even more … maybe even hit our goal!

Kickstarter is an all or nothing platform, so we don’t receive any of those pledges (and again .. your cards were not charged). BUT YOU INSPIRED US! We realized we can move forward taking steps of faith and trust God to bring the rest. So, we purchased airline tickets and are making this official – Becoming Fools has a green light!

As of today, $40,740 has been given through our web site. If you were one of the people who contributed to the $105,000 in pledges, we humbly ask you to help us by giving your pledge through our web site. We believe this story will make a difference and are moving forward into production. Let’s do this together … Comedy wins in the end!

Thanks & God Speed,

Scott Owen Moore
